Areas of Interest

My research interest is in studying posttranslational modifications of transcription factors in glucose and lipid metabolism. A combination of genetic, molecular and biochemical approaches is employed to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying the posttranslational modifications as well as the physiological consequences on glucose and lipid homeostasis.
